First (if you haven't already done so) run the script shown above to generate the Doctor Who training database.
The aim of this exercise is to use a CTE (Common Table Expression) to extract data from the database in two passes:
You get no points for pointing out that you could do all of this in a single query!
Start by creating a query to show just the episode id numbers for those Doctor Who episodes written by authors with MP as part of their names:
This should return 4 episodes (one written by Keith Temple, as it happens, and 3 by Steve Thompson).
Now create a CTE from this, using the standard syntax:
-- previous command must end with a semi-colon (;)
WITH NameForYourCte AS (
-- now use this in a query
-- join this to other tables as normal
INNER JOIN ...
Your final query should join to your CTE to show the companions featuring in these episodes (you may need to use the word DISTINCT to avoid some companions' names appearing twice):
The results: 4 companions feature in episodes written by authors whose names contain MP.
Optionally, save your query as If that is not useful.sql, then close it down.
